The Press Release

Phillip and Bobby have sent out a press release this morning formally announcing their intention of applying for the USEF Technical Advisor and Chef positions.  The release contains two very important pieces of information:

1) If hired as Technical Advisor, Dutton would retire from competition after the London Olympics in 2012.

2) Bobby resigned from the USEF Technical Advisor/Chef d’Equipe Search Committee to pursue the position of Chef d’Equipe.

Both of these steps are appropriate and necessary.  But, as I indicated in this morning’s post, Phillip retiring upon being hired might be seen as a downside by the USEF because he is such a strong rider. 
The rest of the press release contains a lot of biographical information.  [Full Press Release, via USEA]
